ATENEO sophomore Maddie Madayag hurt her knee during practice and the Lady Eagles are waiting for test results to determine the extent of the injury, according to tea manager Tony Liao.

“Nangyari ito yesterday sa practice, actually, after na nga ng practice habang nasa spiking drill. Tapos na ang practice noon and nagi-spike na lang sila nina Alyssa (Valdez) and 'yung iba pa. Nangyari 'yun after nu’ng running spike niya and she got it on her own.”

The team fears Madayag suffered an ACL injury, and the Lady Eagles are waiting for confirmation from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Raul Canlas.

"Malamang kanan. Noong nangyari 'yung accident tiningnan siya ng PT (physical therapist) namin and pinisil-pisil. Ang sabi niya ay possible ACL (injury) pero siyempre ang may last say pa rin ay si Dr. Canlas," said Liao.

The Ateneo middle blocker finished on top of the best server list at the end of the first round of elimination.

The Lady Eagles are in provisional solo first place with an 8-2 win-loss record.
